CEU Course Description

Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative diagnosis seen in the general population, and is considered one of the leading causes of neck pain in patients aged 40-60 years. Patients with cervical spondylosis are commonly suffering from neck pain and dizziness due to disturbance in cervical proprioception, therefore, inhibiting the causes and improving proprioception might be a key for a positive treatment effect. This may be due to an imbalance between the posterior neck stabilizers and the Deep Cervical Flexors (DCFs). The goal of this CEU course is to evaluate the effect of DCFs training on neck proprioception, pain, muscle strength, and dizziness in patients with cervical spondylosis.

CEU Course Objectives

1.  Describe the specific proprioceptive training regime that is designed for controlling neck posture and relieving pain.
2.  Determine the cervical muscle for which high density concentrations of muscle spindles have been identified.
3.  Identify which component of DCF training may improve muscle spindle function, which translates to improved cervical proprioception.
4.  Name the muscle for which activity is reduced and DCFs activity is increased following DCFs training, as measured with electromyography.
